SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) On a historic Thursday evening for Arike Ogunbowale, Muffet McGraw was just as pleased by the double-doubles she received from frontliners Brianna Turner and Jessica Shepard in No. 5 Notre Dame's 89-61 rout of Duke.

"What a momentous day," McGraw said after Ogunbowale scored 25 points on 11-of-19 shooting to become Notre Dame's all-time leading scorer, passing Skylar Diggins-Smith. "I'm really happy for Arike - she didn't waste any time and keep us in suspense too long. But our game plan was high-low (with Shepard and Turner) and to really exploit that."

The 6-foot-4 Shepard had 24 points (on 10-of-19 shooting) and 10 rebounds - her 11th double-double of the season and 51st of her career that started at Nebraska - and the 6-foot-3 Turner had her seventh double-double of the season - 21 points and 15 rebounds - and three blocks on the historic night for their teammate.
